About the Course

The PROFIBUS International Certified Installer Course is a hands-on and practical training course targeted at individuals with little or no previous PROFIBUS experience. It is an excellent way to ensure that your employees are competently trained to install and maintain a faultless network, thereby avoiding and minimising downtime.

Further than this, and following the lead of other countries, more and more end-users are requiring installations that are completed by certified people to guarantee a certain level of technical competence.

Course Duration

This course is completed in 1.5 days. It includes a theoretical and practical aspect. You will receive a certificate upon successful completion.


Class Numbers

Due to the technical nature of this course and our desire to see a maximum pass rate, we limit groups to a maximum of 8 people.

CPD Points

You will earn 1 CPD point upon successful completion of this course.


This course takes place from our offices in Fourways, Johannesburg. Please contact us if you would like to arrange onsite training.

Course Outline and Certification

This in-depth course provides an overview of the PROFIBUS network operation and its’ characteristics, covering the theory, practice, and common pitfalls of PROFIBUS DP and PA installation.

Using the demonstration boards developed by the Training and Competence Centre which integrate a wide range of standard industrial devices, the student is taken through the basics of topology and wiring an active network through to using diagnostic tools to detect and correct installation faults.

The Certified PROFIBUS Installer Course meets the PROFIBUS International training material outcomes and is an internationally recognised certification by PI.

This course is focused on providing attendees with the knowledge to ensure that PROFIBUS network installations are performed to the highest of standards and avoid common installation errors.


Although the Installer’s course is aimed at technical personnel who have not worked with PROFIBUS before, we have found it necessary to introduce a guideline for prospective attendees. 

It is most beneficial if the attendee has a technical qualification or good experience with or understanding of digital communications systems. Occasional exposure to cabling PROFIBUS networks has been found to be insufficient in preparing potential candidates.

Therefore, as a guideline, potential candidates must:

Have a good command of the English language

Be able to understand and interpret technical ideas and systems

Understand the basics of communications and what it entails

While the IDX Academy makes every effort to assist attendees in understanding the subject matter and associated concepts, the course time is limited and therefore the IDX Academy cannot be held responsible for attendees that fail to cope with the material covered.
